Restaurant Reviews

  • E-San ranks in the Willamette Week's annual Cheap Eats contest. "Reliably tasty, affordable food is peppered with just enough surprises to make it stand out." (See also their review of the new Northwest location)

  • Citysearch local reviewers give E-San a 9.6 and have lots of great comments about it. It was also voted every year as one of the best Thai restaurants in Portland (see Best of CitySearch contest).

Our best fans are our customers, and we thought we'd quote a few...

  • "Just had a surprise birthday party there, and had the best time. Even my 82 year old aunt, who had never eaten Thai food, said it was great. The upstairs area makes a great banquet area. Thanks again!" --Howard

  • "Arguably one of the best Thai places in downtown Portland" --Jason Berzow on Chowbaby.com
